Nice to have you back, Charlie, and it's also nice to see a friendly face.
Is my face not friendly? *crazy*
Yes, Freddy it is...frighteningly so. *shok*
Not sure how to take that. A compliment? *biggrin*

Anyway, giving Pink Floyd - Endless River another spin, great sound quality. Not sure though if the lack of 'songs' will prove to be it's downfall...

Thanks for the welcome back, BBB and Jim.

Yes Jim, those McCartney albums are rather special, aren't they. They are woven into my memories courtesy of my older brother playing them in the early seventies whilst I was in thrall to T.Rex, The Beach Boys and ELO. The covers of the two Macca LPs do that Proustian thing everytime I see them: times past fondly remembered.

This morning:

Subtitulo - Josh Rouse

Bap-tizum (1972 Ann Arbor Jazz Festival) - Art Ensemble Of Chicago

Black Narcissus - Joe Henderson

Tomorrow's Modern Boxes - Thom Yorke

That's one of only 5 Fela albums I have on vinyl, all 80s copies when I started to get into his music. I've got the complete Fela boxed set on CD - 50+ albums - would love all the vinyl originals, but it's never gonna happen...

Thinking back to 1977 , with my Stranglers and Sex Pistols LPs tucked under my arm, the prevailing zeitgeist meant that I had to roundly dismiss all my record collection, and this particular group were definitely looked upon as the antichrist. Fast forward 38 years and those punk LPs just gather dust, whilst this and it's ilk get regular spins..



... I love this LP with a passion.

There, I've said it...... I like ELP ( and I don't care maaaaan as Johnny would say)

It's a fair cop LA, I was fickle. To be honest it wasn't really about the music, I wasn't getting much joy trying to impress the girls with my ELP and Yes collection.

The first ELP record was very popular in our 6th form common room; I didn't think much to it I'm sorry to say but I did like 'Take A Pebble' which I think is on that lp. I was always trying to get them to play Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Free and er Caravan records. As DIB said, they still get a spin today. I'm glad we all like dfferent stuff.

Regards.

Yep, I love it too. Maybe musically, I led a sheltered life back then, but I'd never heard anything like it. I play it often

I bought this on cassette when I was a teenager. Some great 12" mixes of classic early rap.
